It’s a really nice paddle with a polished carbon fibre weave finish – similar to a Burnwater Reactor paddle. The thing we love about this paddle is that it’s a complete one piece construction which doesn’t have a joint showing between the blade and the shaft compared to other carbon fibre paddles currently in the market. Though after trials of this paddle within a boat, I found that the paddle is a bit soft and can be dented easily if you get hit by other paddles.
The downside of this paddle is it’s weight at 550g or 19oz and is comparable to a Typhoon8 which is around the 500 – 520g range. At the price of $199 AU it’s a reasonable starter paddle for a person trying out dragon boating and wanting something a little lighter than a wooden paddle. My preference though, is still the Typhoon8 paddle if I were to spent that amount of money.
